Very nicely decorated interior, friendly welcome, great service by friendly staff, great food. Lighting slightly subdued, chairs comfortable enough that you don't start to wriggle by the end of the meal. Parking in the front yard and on the street. Don't remember there being a step in and everything inside is on one level. Between 5.30 and 7.00 there is... More

We went to the zen restaurant after reading various reviews on TripAdvisor. We arrived promptly for our booking and from the outset were treated superbly by all members of the staff even though they were clearly very busy. Our meals were delivered quickly by the wonderful waitress May who made our evening with her charming wit and demeanour. The food... More

Staff are particularly attentive at the Zen. They have a good choice of gluten free dishes available and nothing is too much trouble. Shall be visiting again in the near future.

Nice furnishings and great atmosphere. The staff were excellent, welcoming, attentive and very knowledgable about the menu. We had read reviews in The Times and were really excited about the food. We may of just ordered poorly however neither of us found the food outstanding. I had sizzling steak & garlic which was very tender but was more boiled on... More

Tried the early bird menu with 4 friends and was looking forward to it to discover the prawn salad only had 3 to 4 prawns, followed by a tasteless beef yellow curry which had approximately one sandwich slice of beef shredded into a very bland sauce. The expensive drinks made this a dear do for an early evening meal. To... More

Ate here tonight,prawn crackers were cold. How on earth is it difficult to make them fresh? They tasted like they were at least a day old. Also the drinks were expensive. The starter was average and not very big. When the main came it looked alright but was very plain,watery and didn't taste very nice. Barely ate any of it... More

My favourite eat in Chinese restaurant, the best rice so fluffy and light and the beef satay is the best I have ever had, nothing compares at all anywhere else we have tried. We don't steer away from what we like for fear of being disappointed but one day we might! The decor and staff are superb, the ribs are... More
